How To Care For Your Ganni Boots

1: It is always advised to keep your boots in the designated box, if you don’t have this, make sure they’re positioned away from heat sources and light.
2: When cleaning, always use a soft brush or cloth dampened with water to remove small splashes of dirt. It’s worth investing in a good quality brush to ensure the boots are well looked after. When cleaning leather or rubber outsoles, it is best to use a gentle washing detergent, then once you’ve completed the process, dry the boots gently, using a towel.
3: Apply polish or leather conditioner to your Ganni leather boots with a soft brush or cloth, this will brighten them if they haven’t been polished for a long time. When polishing, apply it in circular motions for the best result.
4: When cleaning suede, use a soft bristle brush to remove stains. If the marks are very visible and stubborn, try a small dab of white wine vinegar on a soft cloth and gently dab the affected area.
5: It’s recommended that any Ganni boots that are made from python-embossed leather should be taken to a specialist dry cleaner, or call the Ganni customer services team who can advise you on the safest way to clean your boots.
